That's true, but I guess for some they are like a challenge. It happens the same with esoteric languages... We could say that Python becomes an esoteric language when you apply the rule "all in one line" hahaha

Pretty recently I was writing a program that was going to be automated on a server with limited space so I crunched the program from 100 lines to like 15 awful one liners and it cut the size of the file down to like less than a kilobyte lol it was a fun challenge to see how small I could get the program and I could see people doing it for fun/proof of concept
